UMC broke ground on our new EMS Station One and Communications Center… we can hardly contain our excitement!
The new Station One will be a 105,000 square foot site located at 1705 E. 9th St. This facility will include an EMS Station, administrative offices and Communications Center. It will also be a brand new 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.
Notable features of this facility include:
- a garage with space for three ambulances
- personnel quarters
- a hardened roof and exterior walls to resist gale-force winds and tornados
- a dedicated generator for back-up power
- expanded work areas
- industry-leading lighting
- a new 9-1-1 Communications Tower and more
“These new facilities will ensure our team continues to leverage technology to optimize resource management, clinician education and preparedness and operational workflow,” said Thomas Moore, Director of UMC Emergency Medical Services. “The future design and its location is a testament of UMC’s commitment to the entire community; allowing for expansion of operations and the ability to take advantage of data-driven, evidence-based and quality focused initiatives for years to come.”
The facility’s design allows for future growth of the center as the population increases and additional dispatchers and supervisors are needed. The ability to expand in place demonstrates UMC’s commitment to our community and to East Lubbock’s vitality.
